June 9th March for Justice

The most recent blockade of Whiteclay on August 26th wasn’t the first action to happen this summer. June 9th was the date of this year’s annual March for Justice in memory of Ron Hard Hart and Wally Black Elk, two of Whiteclay’s victims. Deep Green Resistance participated in solidarity, and enacted a blockade of the road using U-locks and chains at the request of the Lakota. The blockade ended after more than four hours when the Sheridan County Sheriff signed a written agreement to work with Lakota women to end the routine criminal offenses in Whiteclay, however the sheriff never followed up on this commitment. It is this broken promise that prompted the most recent direct action on August 26th. Check out the video to learn more.
